Your ideal stay in Polynesia?
2 days in Tahiti so that you can rest from your trip, visit the Papeete market, discover the Papenoo valley in 4×4 and progressively get used to the Polynesian framework.
3 days in Moorea to contemplate the landscape from the belvedere, ride a horse, paddle along the lagoon and take a sunbath at Coco Beach, on the motu.
2 days in Bora Bora, inevitable stopover, in order to appreciate the calm provided by an overwater bungalow and enjoy the comfort of a five star resort.
2 days in Huahine, a wild and authentic island, which brims with legends. Bike around the island and take advantage of a boat excursion to taste the famous “ma’a Tahiti”, litterally sitting in the lagoon…
3 days in Rurutu to explore the caves, eat juicy oranges along hikes, enjoy the mild climate and swim with whales.
Your favorite place in Polynesia?
The Tahitian peninsula where you can feel utterly disoriented; it is a quiet place, all about lush green.
Your favorite restaurant?
I would definitely recommend l’Auberg’in, located on the heights of Papeete. The restaurant overlooks the capital and, if you arrive early enough, you can contemplate the sunset while watching boats returning from Moorea. An intimist setting, a breathtaking sight, an attentive staff and succulent meals. I highly recommend the burrata and its red pepper sorbet, the crispy parrot fish and the chocolate fondant, a staple of French cuisine.
